Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda on Saturday cautioned people against forces that were trying to "endanger country's existence".

Addressing a workers' meeting here, he said politics of character assassination and conspiracy was being done to weaken the Congress, as it was the only party of all sections of society and everyone knew that the country would become weak with the weakening of the Congress.

Calling the November 4 rally in New Delhi special, Hooda urged the party workers to participate in the rally in large numbers.

Hooda said no matter how much false propaganda was being promoted, the ground reality was still in favour of the Congress.

He said the last four general elections, two assembly and two Lok Sabha, in the state had been won by the Congress.

After the Congress came to power in the state in 2005, 10 by-elections were held for various seats of the state assembly and Lok Sabha.

Except one seat of Ellenabad, the main opposition party in the state (INLD) lost all other nine by-elections, he said, adding that the Congress wrested even the Ratia assembly seat from INLD, which the Congress party had not won in the past 30 years.
